Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott close to contract extension with Dallas

Cowboys’ Ezekiel Elliott close to contract extension with Dallas

The Dallas Cowboys went through the 2019 National Football League preseason without star running back Ezekiel Elliott, who is now holding out in hopes of landing a new contract.

As the Cowboys could retain Elliott for the next two years on his rookie contract, owner and general manager Jerry Jones had a great deal of leverage.

Elliott had been holding out all summer in hopes of getting a new deal done, and the thought was he could miss the first few games of the season.

The elder Testaverde spent one of his 21 seasons with Dallas, starting for the Cowboys in 2004. I just want to play ball for a team that knows me off the field and values me on it.

The Cowboys passed the most significant benchmark in Elliott's absence so far with their preseason finale, a 17-15 loss to Tampa Bay on Thursday, the 35th day of a holdout that has covered training camp and all four exhibitions.

"And I can say with confidence that LGBTQ players having the comfort to be themselves, date who they want, share parts of their life with friends and teammates will not rank among those issues".

The fourth overall pick in the 2016 draft is due to make $3.9 million this season and $9.1 million in 2020.

The Cowboys experienced uncertainty over Elliott's availability two years ago when he was fighting a six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations in court.

The momentum marks a change in the talks between the Cowboys and their star running back. Rookie Tony Pollard's idle time cemented his status as the starter if Elliott, a two-time rushing champion, doesn't end his holdout before the opener.

As much as Dallas Cowboys don't want to talk about the fact that Ezekiel Elliott is still missing in action with the start of Week 1 officially underway, it should be viewed as a huge concern.

Could the Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott be close to reaching a new deal?
